Chimpanzee Tracking (Kyambura Gorge and Kalinzu Forest)
The stunning Kyambura (or Chambura) Gorge also called the “Valley of Apes” is located in the far eastern corner of the well- known Queen Elizabeth National Park in south western Uganda. Approximately 1 km across – at its broadest point and about 100 meters deep, this gorge is actually drained by River Kayambura. The landscape is among the most impressive you will find in Uganda and it is swarmed a rich wildlife bio-diversity that comprises of primates, wild animals as well as birds.
The Kyambura Gorge is a section of the stunning Queen Elizabeth National Park or the Mweya (as it is referred to locally) in the lower Western part of Uganda. The majority of Uganda safari visitors into the Queen Elizabeth National park are offered a tour of this amazing gorge as a supplementary bonus.
However, basing on reports made by researchers, only sixteen chimpanzees are remaining within this distant yet very impressive valley.
Enter into this amazing Gorge and you will be marveled by the verdant, rich Tropical Rain-forest right close to the Equator crossing. The gorge is another world on its own. while the Savannah above has a reasonable amount of light, plus sun shine that offers brightness, the tree canopy within this under-ground forest comprised of rich blocks of plant life shut out most of the sun rays and unless you are standing within a clearing you certainly will not require sunglasses or sun- hats since you may actually need to have a clearly view so as not to miss out on the great assortment of Wonders within the Kyambura Gorge.
